Most importantly, we will be reflective of the core values of the Anishinaabeg. This includes living a good life through the Seven Grandfather Teachings: Love, Respect, Wisdom, Humility, Honesty, Bravery and Wisdom. There is so much to these teachings, with many different layers and intricacies. I truly look forward to sharing these with you.
The new colors of the Nbisiing Consulting brand and logo reflect the colours of the Three Fires: red, orange and yellow. These symbolize the founding peoples of the Confederacy, the Ojibwe, Odawa and Pottoawatomi, as well as a grateful homage to our source of knowledge, the Three Fires Midewiwin Lodge. The last colour is blue – symbolizing the lifegiving water that is so important to us all.
Of course, we cannot forget the land! Much of the website’s background imagery includes stylized topographic and contour lines. This represent the land, land-use planning and that stewardship of the land and water is always going to be a foundation for Nbisiing Consulting.
The typeface is quite special too. It uses a sharp, stylized “g” which, when rotated, resembles a old-style key. Working with Nbisiing can be a key to our client’s success in working with Indigenous peoples.
I’m so happy to be a business-owner and being able to share, teach and work with my people. I am confident these philosophy and Indigenous traditional knowledge brings added value to my clients. I am hopeful that this might help creates better awareness and respect, and new relationships that will lead, someday, to reconciliation.
